FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 12, 2013 - OSKRI Corp. of Lake Mills, WI is recalling “Coconut Bar Dark Chocolate”, “Coconut Bar Dark Chocolate Minis”, “Fig Dark Chocolate Bars” and “Almond Dark Chocolate Bars” because the dark chocolate contains milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled “Coconut Bar Dark Chocolate”, “Coconut Bar Dark Chocolate Minis”, “Fig Dark Chocolate Bars” and “Almond Dark Chocolate Bars” was distributed nationwide to retail stores.

The product comes in a 1.9 ounce, flexible plastic wrapper, UPC 666016-300703 (Coconut Bar Dark Chocolate), UPC 666016-400311 (Coconut Bars Dark Chocolate Minis), UPC 666016-300307 (Fig Dark Chocolate Bars) and UPC 666016-300420 (Almond Dark Chocolate Bars) marked with the following stamp, which can be found on the front of the wrapper:

EXP 7/7/14 through 12/12/14

There have not been any complaints of allergic reactions to this product.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the “Coconut Bar Dark Chocolate”, “Coconut Bar Dark Chocolate Minis”, “Fig Dark Chocolate Bars” and “Almond Dark Chocolate Bars” may contain milk in the product. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production process.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to return it to Oskri for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Laura Pineda at Oskri’s Quality Department by emailing quality@oskri.com.

Please return products to: Oskri, 528 E. Tyranena Park Road, Lake Mills, WI 53551
